- Former Generations actress Sophie Lichaba has warned fans against a scammer that is impersonating her online
- According to the actress, the fake account is attempting to get people to invest in some pyramid scheme
- Lichaba is not the first celebrity to fall victim to this type of scam, Big Zulu just recently warned his fans of something similar
Veteran actress Sophie Lichaba has issued a warning to her fans about an imposter using her name to scam people.
The former Generations actress took to her Facebook account to expose the scammer who is using a fake account to convince fans to join some investment pyramid scheme.
“FAKE Account Alert!!! Attached Facebook account is fake! Including the scam of taking money from people. Please share! People are stranded and sick minded using people like me. Be cautious. Do not invest!!!"
The fake account has since been deleted. Sophie is not the only media personality that has had to earn fans from fake accounts.
Briefly News previously reported that Big Zulu has taken to social media to warn his fans about a fraudulent account that is using his name. The rapper discovered that a chancer had created an Instagram account and was sending private messages to a few people.
The imposter is using both Big Zulu's name and picture on the social media platform.
Taking to his own official Instagram account, Big Zulu issued the warning and some advice:
“Nkabi Nation Kunomuntu la ovule Instagram osebenzisa igama lam nesthombe sami ubusy inbox abantu please block this acc it’s not me Ngiyabonga. (There’s a person that has opened an Instagram account using my name and picture and is busy inboxing people.)"
The rapper asked his fans to please block the account.
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Big Zulu has had to deny using supplements to bulk up after a fan recently questioned him. The rapper, as his stage name suggests, is quite a large guy but it seems that it's all natural.
He told the fan that he does not use supplements and doesn’t even gym. His huge stature is pretty much genetic.
Some social media users struggled to believe that the muso doesn’t gym at all while others said that his huge size was probably due to all the meat he was eating.
